The Original Fortitude Series

The aim of the series was to explore and capture "Life after trauma".

To express the thoughts, emotions and experiences visually.

It was an incredibly rewarding journey

which had endless possibilities.

By the time the final 13 images were selected from the multiple photo shoots it had become obvious that this was much bigger than just a college submission. 

 

"Struggling with words was never an issue while we were doing the Fortitude project because this opportunity expressed what I couldn't speak,

I am relieved to know my story is out there even though its not in words"

~ a Teenage Survivor
